The Pebble smartwatch reminds me a little of the JooJoo

Ahead of its time — remember, the JooJoo guys did press demos several weeks before Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad — with much foresight and potential. But ultimately, not good enough that it won’t be leapfrogged. (Never mind all the JooJoo’s legal drama; that’s not what I’m talking about here. And at least the Pebble already has more than 90 pre-orders!)

Note: I haven’t used a Pebble myself; I’m basing my judgment on this Verge article and video. That’s enough to make me think that a smartwatch could potentially be really cool, but this isn’t even close to getting there yet. (Via Gruber.)
